Try setting up your network connection all automatically when connected to a router who acts as a DHCP server. DNS server addresses are also automatically configured via DHCP.

Make sure it can reach your router.

you should verify your internet connection with your provider; DNS error usually happens when connection fails.

Cant get online

might be a router issue, specifically the firewall. you might wanna click on network (ing) and select the router. See if you can manually add the ps3's address as a local access point on your router/ modem. you can access the ps3's ip address in system info, which i'm sure you know. maybe take the firewall down temporarily, by setting it to off, to see if this is blocking the ps3 from accessing the network. does the ps3 need any more configuring, vis a vis the network configuration? Do you need to subscribe to the PS network to access it? I don't have a PS3, but my psp works fine, as well as my 360. Try this and tell me if it works out, or if you need any other clarifications for arising issues. and remember to enable the firewall back up whether or not it works.

man lsn. r u using a direct cable to connect to the inter or a Wireless router?? if ur using a router then turn the moden off for 5 mints also the router and then re-connect, but its much better if ur using a direct cable, by the way make sure that the internert username and password r 100% right and there is nothing missing if u still  having the prob. then u should contact ur ADSL provider let them check ur stauts ASAP ok. hope it will work, and by the way about the freezing thing clean ur DVD first then turn the PS3 and then insert the DVD, DONT u EVER leave any DVD inside the PS3 and shut it down DONT DONT DONT ok man

I don't know if you've tried Sony's website, but check this link and see if anything there helps. It sounds like the PS3 isn't detecting all your settings automatically.
